Adolescent Abraham

 

On Saturday, June 9, visit Lincoln’s New Salem State Historic Site to attend a book signing in celebration of Young Lincoln, a historical fiction novel for readers of all ages. Young Lincoln is written by St. Louis-based middle-school humanities teacher and author Jan Jacobi and has been described as “a cracking good story – one that hews to the historical facts, while hewing from them the believable human figure of a boy named Abraham growing into the man Lincoln,” according to Robert Bray, author of Reading with Lincoln. Narrated by Abraham Lincoln himself, Jacobi’s novel, which has already been compared to the award-winning Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, enables readers to step back in time and travel with young Abraham down the Mississippi river, meet his various mentors, and mourn his painful losses. This event is free to the public.
